    Beware-NEW IRS Identity Theft Scam

    With tax refund season here, the con artists are at it again.

    The scam:

    The email states you're getting some money back from the IRS and all you have to do is click the link and provide your personal details. When you click t he link, this IRS scam email takes takes you to a web page that looks surprising official. The site asks for you name, your address, your social securty number and other personal info.

    The problem: the email isn't actually coming from the IRS. You are not getting any xtra money from the government. If you fill out the form, you are in serious trouble. Your identity is stolen. If you receive any email asking for personal information, don't fall for it no matter who the email come from.
    Don't get scammed. Check out all opportunities or Companies before doing business.
